Christina was born and raised in Augusta, GA. She double-majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Spanish at Vanderbilt University. Christina loved Vanderbilt so much that after graduating, she stayed for a gap year to work as a research assistant. Christina then headed north to pursue her medical degree at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University. While in Cleveland, she developed interests in hematology/oncology and infectious disease and dedicated one year to conducting translational leukemia research. Christina is thrilled to return to Nashville to complete her Internal Medicine residency and to earn the distinction of “Double ‘Dore”. Outside of medicine, Christina enjoys running, cycling, hiking, yoga, Orangetheory, cooking, gardening, practicing her Spanish, traveling, and spending time with her significant other, Jon, and her fluffy cat, Rory.
